great guests as well. [inaudible] ainsley: senator tim scott. who else, brian? brian: stuart varney is going to be here. we booked him. a lot of times he shows up late. we have to see and many more. pete hegseth and dana perino. you know it's a good show if dana perino got up 8 hours early to be with us. geraldo is going to be here. we have great guests. we also have the guy who is in charge of the president's campaign, brad par school will be here as well. brian: he is significantly taller than me. he is like 6'9". ainsley: he is taller than steve. brian: he was with the president last night. flying out with him 9:00 in the morning. pumped up with a few things happening. including democrats coming the president's way. steve: we will see about that. ainsley: nancy pelosi does say she wants a comprehensive bipartisan deal when it comes to immigration. we will see. brian: and i believe it.
3:02 am
steve: she also said yesterday after the president unveiled his new immigration plan, which is merit based also where you have to learn english and take a civic's test. she, nancy pelosi said, that's dead on arrival. we will play some of that with her in a minute. but, first, here's the president unveiling the big plan. >> our proposal is pro-american, pro-immigrants and pro-worker. it's just common sense. we want immigrants coming in. we cherish the open door that we want to create for our country, but a big proportion of those immigrants must come in through merit and skill. future immigrants will be required to learn english and to pass a civics exam prior to admission. [applause] and, therefore, summaries and possibly political, we
3:03 am
can't get the democrats to approve this merit based high security plan, then we will get it approved immediately after the election when we take back the house, keep the senate and, of course hold the presidency. [applause] brian: of course if you are the president and have a rose garden address can you demand the president be great. the president did have that type of poll. jared kushner's plan. it seemed very 2020esque. talks about things can't and australia doing looking for first round draft picks there has got to be a reason. that's where we are at now in 20206789 only can have certain amount coming in and about time saying some of these foreign students coming here, for example under a are doing great. why are we sending you home if you want to stay. ainsley: you are going to be insent advised if you are one of the best of the best coming. in right now the average yearly age for legal
3:04 am
immigrants is $43,000. the president says if you do it legally, and you are highly skilled, we are going to pay you $126,000. steve: that's good. 66% of those people who get green cards today are through the program where if you have a family connection and only 12% based on skill. going forward it would be closer to 60% based on merit. now, here are the problems with it. ann coulter was upset. brian: she is upset? since when? [laughter] steve: thursday. she is upset that the number of green cards is going to remain at a million. meanwhile you have the democrats and they are going hey, wait a minute. where is the plan to deal with the dreamers? as for the speaker, she says merit? i don't like that word. and crisis, well i've got an explanation. watch this. >> merit, it is really a condescending word. they are saying family is
3:05 am
without merit? are they saying most of the people that have ever come to the united states in the history of our country are without merit because they don't have an engineering degree? let me just say this we have never not said there is a crisis. there is a humanitarian crisis at the border and some of it provoked by out actions taken by the administration. ainsley: did i hear her right? brian: exactly. she has never said there was a crisis at the border. ainsley: she has always called it a crisis. brian: didn't she tell us to mow the lawn and then we would have no more problems. the problem the grass was so tall we couldn't see the people sneaking in. steve: unfortunately for the speaker videotape exists here is graphic evidence that maybe that was not accurate. brian: put the tape in the vcr. >> this president just used the back drop of the oval office to manufacture a crisis. >> president trump must stop holding american people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis. >> the crisis on the border is a manufactured crisis.
3:06 am
>> they are engaging in what i would call manufactured moral crisis. >> this so-called crisis at the border is fake. this is a crisis of his own making because it was a campaign pledge. ainsley: don't you love having a studio audience. brian is commenting on each of those. brian: have you no proof of that, anxiously. all you keep your mouth shut. don't say a word. ainsley: i love what the democrats said to the president yesterday. you know what? this is going to get passed because we are going to get the house after the election and then we will pass it then. brian: here is what bothers me. this is the 2020 speech and it's great. steve: it's politics. brian: do you know what i want and i think we all want? there is a five alarm fire on our southern border right now and the men and women every day need some help. [cheers and applause] brian: this plan is not going to help. steve: that's what the president was talking about yesterday. that's why the president essentially rolled this out. ultimately and we heard a
3:07 am
little of it yesterday in the rose garden. is he going to say look, i want immigration reform. you want immigration reform. the democrats don't, so the only way to do anything about that is to elect more republicans. brian: steve, did you say that he referenced senator lindsey graham in the audience. he said lindsey, love what you are doing. with nancy pelosi hypocrisy didn't say it was a crisis we understand that there ask s. an opportunity there are times when democrats and republicans come together. when the market fell apart in 2008 and after 9/11, this is almost like that at the border. we have never seen these numbers before. and the men and women who have to round up these illegals who want to become part of our country are saying please help us. they could actually get something done now, please go behind closed doors and do it. steve: folks, do you think the democrats will work with the president to give him a win before the elections? >> no. ainsley: no. brian: okay. i do. [laughter] all right? i am holding out hope they will rise to the occasion so
3:08 am
all of you can now leave for turning against me. [laughter] ainsley: let's talk about something else you are concerned with too how this russian investigation started. bill barr is trying to get to the bottom of it. exclusive interview yesterday with bill hemmer and full thing is going to air today. we have a clip with him chatting with bill hemmer. watch this. >> been trying to get answers to questions. and i found that a lot of the questions have been inadequate. i have also found that some of the explanations i have gotten don't hang together, so, in a sense, i have more questions today than i did when i first started. >> bill: some of what things don't hang together? >> some of the explanations of what occurred. >> bill: why does that matter? >> because i think people have to find out what the government was doing during that period. if we're worried about foreign influence for the very same reason, we should be worried about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale. and so, i'm not saying that happened, but i'm saying that we have to look at tha
3:09 am
that. brian: it's amazing what's happened since he has signed u.s. attorney john durham to this and since bill barr took over. comey, clapper and brennan are all turning on each other. james baker saying it wasn't my idea to go up to the president and brief him on the dossier and brennan saying it wasn't my idea to use the dossier and put it in the fisa application. comey says oh yeah it was your idea. and rod rosenstein is saying comey is basically a deranged lunatic. what the heck has changed? man. steve: what has changed is donald trump won. if hillary clinton were president of the united states, you think there would be an investigation into this? >> no. ainsley: no. there wouldn't be. trying to get ahead of it because they are nervous. their name is going to be on the it. brian: down goes comey. [ applause ] ainsley: there was a fox news poll how agencies like
3:10 am
the fbi broke the law to investigate president trump? look at that 58 percent said extremely, very and somewhat. and only 31 percent said not at all. steve: add up the first three. ainsley: that's pretty scary we can't trust the fbi. i'm not saying anything about the field offices. we know there are a lot of amazing people who work for the fbi as investigators. steve: we polled the audience a little while ago. let's go ahead and come out here. welcome to "fox & friends," folks. where is lex. regarding the fbi and the department of justice, do you think that it's important to have this investigation to see whether or not laws were broken when they start to surveil the trump campaign? >> i think it's very important and these people are very skilled at their trade crafts. i'm sure they covered it up very well as they were going along. one has to dig very deep to get to the bottom of it and find out what actually happened. steve: the trade craft. you are thinking if these
3:11 am
guys are spies they probably figured a way to do it where we will never find out is that what you mend. >mean. >> a lot of blowing smoke. that's what we have got to figure out. steve: good answer. [applause] steve: alberto, how are you? >> fine, thank you. steve: all right. what concerns you about this investigation? we haired from the attorney general a couple of weeks ago spying did occur, he believed. and now this mr. durham is looking into all this stuff. do you think we will get to the bottom of it. >> i really hope. so nobody is above the law. and not -- and that includes the fbi themselves. and i believe that the investigators that are investigating the investigators. steve: right. >> however that goes. but, anyways, they should proceed and proceed vigorously with every method that they can to get to the bottom of this. steve: all right. thank you very much. good answer. where is nancy? nancy, right over here.
3:12 am
good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: what's your big concern? does it bother you to think that the whole fisa thing was written back in the 1970s so that the united states could surveil people in other countries. and it's very disturbing if they use the laws that are supposed to apply to people from other countries to spy on americans illegally. >> i think it's very concerning, very concerning. and i hope that they get to the bottom of this. it is going to take some deep investigation and, yes, it is very concerning. steve: do you think we will get to the bottom eventually? >> i do. i do. i have faith in attorney general barr that he will get it done. steve: well, we will find out and that interview with bill hemmer and the attorney general will be on at 9:00 on "america's newsroom." all right. nice round of applause for everybody. [ applause ] all right. all right.

[cheers and applause] brian: former vice president joe biden is crushing the competition for the democratic nomination so far. ainsley: there is a new fox news poll that shows that biden is doing a lot better, more than double the lead over his closest competitor which is bernie sanders who has 17%. that is a 6 point drop in support since biden got in the race. steve: is the crowded field helping joe biden in the
3:18 am
polls? let's talk to joe concha, media reporter for the hill radio talk show host on wor in new york city. as you look at joe biden's number. is it getting bigger because people are looking at the whole list and it's like well, he is the one guy i know? >> it seems to be that way. obviously he has the name recognition but the media attention that he is getting over the last three weeks, let me give you some numbers more than every other candidate combined. when you consider everybody, that there is 74 people running on the democratic side. [laughter] that's pretty impressive. no, really. it's two football teams. it's 23 people at this point. to do that over 22 other people. listen to these numbers. he was mentioned last week alone 1400 times. bernie sanders only 500, a third. steve: of the 1400, how many good and how many bad? it's not broken down like that. >> no. total mentions. i didn't see de blasio on your poll by the way. steve: we had him yesterday. >> this would be considered
3:19 am
bad, bad press right here. everybody hates bill. brian: that's the hometown paper. >> sometimes negative press is something that isn't a good thing. you see that with the president and it seems to work just fine. for bide it's mostly been positive though. ainsley: biden in march 35%. they asked democrats may 11th through the 14th. why the increase? >> for biden? >> that's a very good question. he really hasn't said too many things that you would consider to be monumental. brian: except china isn't our competitor. 1968 he would be right on the money. >> that's true. he did say that he wanted to offer health insurance to all undocumented or illegal immigrants. that seemed to get some attention. for the most part he hasn't done any tough interviews, guys. steve: other thing that's different between that poll and now he has officially declared. some suggestion maybe he is
3:20 am
in, maybe he is out. he has got to decide and it had been a long process. >> that's true. a lot of other people had declared as well. they can't seem to get any traction. brian: couple things to warren ticked up 5 points. sanders is judging. buttigieg went up five harris dropped three. >> yeah, kamala harris by many measures was supposed to be a pretty strong frontrunner for the nomination. then again when you think about it donald trump wasn't even in the race in june of 2015. the debates are the big thing. ainsley: everyone knows joe biden. when you said harris oh kamala harris. name recognition is big. steve: she did relaunch this week. ladies and gentlemen, round of applause for joe concha.

3:26 am
america that this was going to happen and no one paid attention. steve: what about people like me who grew up so poor we didn't have any money to go to college wound up getting scholarships and things like that. able to make it. would that help me get in? >> people should be able from a merit based system fight for their scholarship. it is a tough task going on the internet, finding all of the scholarships that you qualify for. instead of fixing it on the local level in the education system and preparing people to go to college we are about to create a workforce where people aren't qualified. but the universities don't care because, guess what? they still get the money. meanwhile, college students go into debt. their parents got to help them pay it back. there is really no incentive for them to push the students once they have made it to the college. ainsley: poor neighborhoods. what if colleges look at that and say we had too many
3:27 am
from that neighborhood last time. >> they are not going to do it. they will end up putting most of those kids through. those kids aren't going to be prepared to get -- by the way, this goes to the larger question. why are we pushing college so much still when a lot of these college students that graduate with degrees still can't get jobs? [applause] brian: do you know what's going to happen? they're going to say i know you are living in a beautiful area of michigan we will get an address in inner city detroit in order to look as though we are academically disadvantaged. >> they did not think this through. second of all the score is invisible. the kids don't know what their score is anything done in secret is shady. brian: 58 colleges. steve: and 158 in the fall. they do not provide information about the student. they provide information about the student's environment. the student's sat score and other academic accomplishments in the context of where they live and learn. ainsley: do these rich hollywood people paying for their kids are they the reason for.
3:28 am
this they probably are. going to lead to discrimination. look at the lawsuit reported on. at harvard university. they are discriminating against these students because they say too many asians there. this is going to happen. no one knows the score and metric they are using. of course they said yeah your background and all of that how do we know? brian: i went to college for my parents paid for me to get a women's gymnastics scholarship. i want the scandal to come out now. [laughter] >> couldn't cut the muster. >> no, i couldn't. really troublesome. steve: you have a lot of fans here. where is ker carrie? what's your question for lawrence? >> hi, lawrence. i really appreciate the work you are doing. i have a child who is going to be in college in a year. when i was in college and graduated in 1982, we were taught how to think. we weren't taught what to think. and i can't even believe all these years later i'm concerned that my son is
3:29 am
going to be taught what to think and i'm also concerned for his safety. he grew up in a fairly, you know, we are open thinkers. we are critical thinkers. we are not group thinkers. and i'm concerned that he is going to go to college and voice his opinion and get beaten up. it blows my mind that all these years later i'm saying this. how do you help us? >> you are 100 percent right. we talked about this at campus reform. professors are supposed to set up the conversation and have that dialogue. now it's all about indoctrination. every single issue that's in the mainstream today starts on the college campuses. you think kavanaugh started on capitol hill? it didn't start on capitol hill. it started on the college campuses where there was no due process. the duke lacrosse case and the uva case where students weren't able to get that due process and fight gengsz their accusers and now what we saw at the supreme court where kavanaugh was taken away. all this identity politics
3:30 am
started on the college campuses. a merit based system started on the college campuses. trying to get rid of it. every issue in the mainstream today of reparations started on the college campuses. socialism started on the college campuses. if we do not wake up and pay attention to what's happening to our kids, it's gonna destroy the country. brian: right there. is a reason why most of them are going to be voting for bernie sanders. >> people laughed at bernie because bernie didn't have any friends. he came back, tlaib, aoc there is a movement. they may not win the next election but within the next 20 years they will be real competitors for the united states presidency. steve: ladies and gentlemen, lawrence jones.

3:35 am
merit based immigration. a very sensible, rational solution to a problem we face in this country. obviously lindsey graham introduced a bill that fixes things immediately along the southern border with the smuggling the child trafficking, the human trafficking as well. it's a horrible situation down there. we are looking at fixing this long-term. so many of the problems we face are because of immigration system that hasn't been touched for almost 60 years now. time to fix it. the president wants to do it. it's up to democrats to come to the table. we have repeatedly tried to get them there and they won't do it. ainsley: what's happening behind the scenes? are the democrats going to work with them? if not, they risk the american people a year and a half until the election. they will start to see that there is a major problem down on the border if they haven't already seen it already and that democrats have got to work with the republicans to do something about it. >> well, they should. so many of these democrats ran on and won in districts that were so narrow because they went for trump in the 2016 election. the problem is they said they wouldn't be pelosi's puppet. they wouldn't do everything

4:02 am
the question was whether or not it was legitimately started. well, here's the attorney general chatting with mr. hemmer talking about we need to know whether or not somebody in the federal government had their thumb on the scale watch. >> trying to get answers to questions. and i found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate. i also found that some of the explanations i have gotten don't hang together. so, in a sense, i have more questions today than did i when i first started. >> some of what things don't hang together? >> some of the explanations of what occurred. bribe. >> bill: why does that matter? >> people have to figure out what the government was doing during that period. if we are worried about foreign influence for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abused their power and put their them on the scale. and so, i'm not saying that happened. but i'm saying that we have to look at that. brian: congratulations to bill hemmer, probably the number one interview in the
4:03 am
country. he got it and had 20 go to a very hot sweaty nation to do it. he is going to be with us at 8:5. join us with more. i hope he brings sound bites with him. things have changed. for the longest time it was donald trump who included collud with vladimir putin to win an election thought supposed to win. steve: that was the suggestion. brian: that was the nonstop theory over the last 22 months. now it seems to have switched. now all of a sudden rod rosenstein is blasting james comey. james comey and john brennan are disagreeing on who actually wanted to use out dossier and who wanted to actually brief the president now we're finds out james baker was the attorney for the fbi, the counsel. if you were me, you would have done the same thing. suddenly we are seeing a lack of character amongst people that was suppose you had to be on the same side. and it's all since the u.s. attorney was named john durham and especially for the fearless bill barr who was mocking the fact that he
4:04 am
was held in contempt of congress last week to nancy pelosi when he said do you have your hand you have cuffs? ainsley: finally someone is asking questions though. you heard in that interview with bill hemmer. we will see the whole thing later on today. he said i have a lot of answers inadequate. more questions today than when i started. can you believe that? hopefully we are going to get all these answers. i want to see a timeline. i want us to go all the way back to the very beginning and find out how this all happened. steve: when he said some explanations don't hang together. that means people have asked hey what did you do? and they gave him some answer. when you plot it all together and you connect the dots. it's like really? so, anyway, it sounds like the inspector general's report is going to come out with maybe before memorial day or in early june. we will know some then. and apparently mr. durham has been working with mr. horowitz, also all out intel chiefs are in on it. so, by the grace of god,
4:05 am
essentially, we will eventually know exactly what happened. brian: bad news for the president of the united states and mike flynn getting more information what mike flynn knew. there is a voice mail that maybe john dowd calling his house saying the president would like it very much if you didn't say anything, anything more about this. so mike flynn is back in the eye of the storm now. ainsley: keep in mind what you said at the beginning of the show. if hillary clinton were elected we wouldn't even be talking about this today. steve: that's right. speaking of who is going to be elected president of the united states. fox news has come out with a brand new poll as of 6:00 last night. and they asked democratic primary voters who they liked and take a look. the top two names have been -- top three names very familiar. and then the list goes on and on to about 20 down to 1%. nonetheless, joe biden has now lapped bernie sanders. he is 35, bernie is at 17%. while elizabeth warren just under double digits.
4:06 am
brian: we know on sunday mayor pete is going to be here with chris wallace. he is going to do a town hall here. eric swalwell claims he wanted to do a town hall and fox said no. that's what he claims anyway. i think it's interesting that you have a frontrunner now that nobody is attacking. i can't believe they are not even saying anything about his 40 year track record whether you love joe biden or not. he is learnly vulnerable. ainsley: they know is he doing really well. going to be a frontrunner. probably going to win the primary. they possibly want to be vp? steve: the other candidates? what about the mainstream media? what about the coverage? brian: but it's so early. remember, hillary clinton was destroying barack obama at this point in 2007. she had something like a 30 point lead. if i'm running for president, i don't just give up in the spring before the actual first debate. i'm out there saying i'm better than that guy or that woman. where's the fight? the. steve: the rnc has come out and said regarding the lead that joe biden has right now, they have said joe
4:07 am
biden will be the jeb bush of 2020. >> bill: kevin mccarthy in particular. steve: mayor pete will be on the channel with chris wallace coming up this weekend. here are finally some of the platforms he stood for because, in the past, we haven't known exactly what he was for. well now we have a better idea. ainsley: look at some of his ideas. pathway to medicare for all. a commission to propose reparations policies. he wants to implement a green new deal. gun control regulations and replace the electoral college. [boos] steve: electoral college. brian: or about to college. steve: from the electoral college. not going to be bringing up the electoral college that much because going to this place called new hampshire and iowa. and if there wasn't an electoral college these candidates wouldn't be showing up in these places. they would be staying in all the major cities. ainsley: good point because their votes don't matter, right? steve: mayor de blasio who
4:08 am
declared yesterday via video. is he now on his way to iowa. i wonder how the people of iowa are going to feel about his suggestion. [laughter] steve: that we should phase out meet consumption in iowa where a lot of the meat comes from. ainsley: that's true. meatless monday in new york. kids don't get served meat in the cafeteria. brian: interesting campaign. running on anti-steel, glass and cow platform so that will be good and he also killed a ground hog. [applause] brian: this is true. of the groundhog died on that fall a couple weeks later and yet he got reelected. steve: staten island chuck. that was the end of staten island chuck. there was actually according to the "new york post" kind of a coverup where the zoo was trying to cover up the fact that the ground hog didn't actually die. that wasn't chuck that was a groundhog named charlotte. brian: because you can't really tell the difference in groundhogs. no one in america wants to admit it. they all look the same.
4:09 am
[laughter] ainsley: it's so true. you are right. top story with grumpy cat what did you say the bottom line is? brian: he is dead. steve: meanwhile the president of the united states came to a couple of events in new york city yesterday. on the way up, he had this comment about mayor bill de blasio. >> i can't believe it. i just heard that the worst mayor in the history of new york city and without question the worst mayor in the united states is now running for president. it will never happen. i'm pretty good at predicting things like that, i wouli would be very surprisedo see him in there for a long period. it's just not going to happen. if you like high taxes and if you like crime, you can vote for him. but most people aren't into that. so, i wish him luck. but, really it would be better off if you get back to new york city and did your job for the little time you have left. good luck, do well. [laughter] steve: good luck, do well.
4:10 am
this is the cover of the "new york post" today. [applause] steve: everybody hates bill. a quinnipiac poll shows 76% of the people in new york, the people who know him best feel he should not run for president. brian: right. if you have seen the subways. if you have seen the streets. we can't even find the thing called tar to fit in a pothole. so since he took over. ainsley: it's so true. brian: he works out at 10:00. and then goes to work and takes a nap at 12:00 with the door open and newspaper on his head. this guy wants to be president. [. ainsley: even whoopi goldberg yesterday on "the view" going through all the things she doesn't like that he has done here in the city. brian: terrible. ainsley: i down drive fifth avenue to come to work. i live on a different street. we just go that route because i like to go next to the park in the morning and listen to my music. anyway. so when i'm riding down, i can't bring coffee. i get my coffee when i come into my green room because, if you do i'm not kidding it is so infuriating because it's like this the whole way.

brian: attention the other 49 states we need some road spackle, please. something. steve: asphalt. ainsley: just pay more taxes. brian: i wish we could pay more. steve: that's the irony because the taxes are so high and the infrastructure is terrible. brian: i was the one who said let's not talk about de blasio. i just can't believe he is running.

really here we are talking about the issues. right? we have one form of extremism being countered by another form of extremism. these extremists are causing gag orders for everyone who falls in between. what we are seeing right now a big push for late-term abortion laws earlier this year. these are being countered by heart beat laws we are seeing. most americans, about 60% fall somewhere in between. and unfortunately, it's causing a gag order for everyone else because. steve: what do you mean a gag order? >> people feel they are not able to speak up. they are not able to say what they believe in if they don't have one of these polarized visions. brian: kevin mccarthy for example says i'm pro-life. rape and incest i'm okay for having an abortion for that 99 years for a doctor to go to jail if they perform an abortion after six weeks. that's too far. pat robertson says this is not the bill i want to see move forward.
4:27 am
steve: alabama. brian: alabama bill which is maybe going to another state. >> each of these state laws a little bit different. alabama say nothing exclusion for rape or incest. however, if it's medical necessity now that is also subjective when it comes to medical necessity. should we leave things to the states? that's really the foundation of our country. steve: it. >> we want states to represent their individual citizens alabama the far majority of those citizens are pro-life. and it was a female who pushed the main sponsor of the bill a female governor signed it into law. maybe they are actually representing alabama. the concern comes from the supreme court level and whether or not this is going to overturn roe v. wade. i mean, and you look at justice -- now that we have justice kavanaugh. he already said he supports the president. i don't necessarily see them overturning this. and the heart beat bill would -- it does counter what roe v. wade was. so we are one big major supreme court case away from massive frenzy. ainsley: nicole, how did you decide? you were in high school. you went on to become a doctor. you have a beautiful family.

situation let it play itself out and now it's reacting to economic data. yesterday we had great economic data. everything that came out. initial jobless claims plunged. that's great. we had walmart's earnings the best first quarter comparable store sales in nine years. we also had cisco, one of our largest communications companies, they said, listen, the tariffs have had minimal impact. great corporate news. you had great economic data. that sent the market higher. ainsley: isn't market doing that thing like amazon prime and you don't have to be a member and send your packages a day later. >> both of them battling every other week one up each other. they had better traffic and pricing power. >> ultimate 1-2 punch. it's considered a proxy for the american economy. steve: i don't get it, stuart, we were told if the president slaps these big tariffs on china, you know, it's just a slippery slope. we are going to go into oblivion. it seems now that we have finished higher three days in a wrote market has
4:34 am
probably figured out well, this is the way it's going to be for a while. >> the tariffs are not going to hit us as badly as they hit china. our economy, as charles said, look, our economy is doing remarkably well, and so far shows no real impact from the imposition of these tariffs. it's the other way around with china which really is suffering big time. the dow strilsz at the moment are, what about 1,000 points away from all-time high despite this trade war bottom line is it's going better for us than it is for them. >> would it matter that much because it seems to be a bipartisan push, keep your fingers crossed for the usmca to pass. that's the new nafta. >> let me tell you anybody in congress who tries to say president trump's trade war is hurtings farmers and doesn't vote immediately for usmca is being disingenuous. we do $40 billion agricultural exports to canada and mexico. 12 billion to china. bottom line is we do

4:37 am
because of the great recession and the people need to understand consumer debt as a percentage of household income is near all-time lows. so, yeah, our debt levels are up. what's changed credit card isn't the issue anymore. it's student loans, auto loans. all those things. steve: regarding credited cards. where is ryan? ryan, hold your hand up. there you are right there. ryan, you have a question about credit cards, right? >> yes. so -- oh, stand up, sorry. [laughter] my question was i actually like the proposed deal that bernie sanders and aoc had, believe it or not, the cap on 15% for the credit cards. steve: um-huh. >> i think that should be an automatic. steve: what do you guys think? 15%? 15% is a lot. >> they want to lower it to 15%. >> at the moment, isn't the average 17%? steve: or higher. >> they say the wealthier better credit scores are near that 15%.
4:38 am
whereas the poorer folks scores are 25%. i don't think capping that do i think, ryan, the good part of this could be the post office part. in 1947, i think, there were over -- there was an obscene number like $3 billion, millions and millions of people actually had -- you know, savings accounts with the post office or financial arrangements. even when i grew up we didn't have a banking account. everything in officially was a money order from there if the private sector thinks the public is too high risk and government wants to take that on, fine. understand it is high risk. and if something blows up, then the taxpayers should not be on the hook. brian: tell me if this math is right. if you go and cap the interest rate, there are going to be less credit cards for people and people, the first thing they're going to do is take the people most at risk. >> absolutely. brian: they will end up paying the price? >> yes, that's the principled response to 15% cap on the interest rate you pay and credit cards. frankly, it doesn't bother me that much. i just don't like to see

5:26 am
candidates, we talked about this incessantly four-month, will joe biden get in. as soon as he did he rescrambled the race. all the things they tried to attack him, too touchy with women, anita hill. he is too old. nothing touched him. ainsley: i wasn't sure it was best time. i thought maybe four years ago he missed the chance because of all the progressive messages within the democratic party. >> that also could be still true, ainsley, a lot of people believe, democrats believe, if biden had been the nominee, not hillary would he have been more likeable than hillary clinton? arguably yes. but was he in the right state of mind to run at that time? arguably no. so i think it remains to be seen. president trump has a record to run on. he is not just a disruptor, the economy is great. it will be a very close race. nobody will run away with it, unless we get six months out, you hear that new hampshire is in play for trump, or
5:27 am
pennsylvania is in play for biden as polls showed yesterday. that will be super close. steve: it will be interesting to see how much the obama-biden legacy he runs on. whereas a lot of other candidates are talking about the green new deal, which joe biden does not want to talk about, or "medicare for all" which joe biden does not talk about because he likes obamacare. >> actually a lot of democrats do. brian: like what? obamacare or "medicare for all"? >> obama care. they like the idea of "medicare for all," actually if you dig a little deeper, asked donna brazile about this. democrats are pretty rational thinkers, not as progressive as twitter or media would make it out to be. they're not the ones you're talking to. biden comes in, that is more our speed. ainsley: clearly that is why he is doing so well. it was bernie. he jumps in the race. >> when i say rational, they, a lot of democrats would say, we want to win. they think, an they might be
5:28 am
wrong they think that biden would be the most electable. steve: we heard from people from the campaign, the white house, they say, they're looking at 2020 donald trump versus somebody who embraces socialism. joe biden doesn't embrace socialism. a lot of the others do. he he does not. >> the other thing joe biden can do, this is a guy as donna brazile explaining to me, he can go to a union hall, get a standing ovation. he can go to a black church in the afternoon, pet standing ovation. can go to silicon valley, get a standing ovation. go to new york, crosses a lot of boxes or lines. brian: see if maria pushes this conversation further. you wearing red. do you have a question for the great dana perino? >> yes i do. thanks, dana, for being here. having worked for president bush for as his press secretary and having to deal with the media as you did, what do you believe constitutes the lack of civility
5:29 am
today between reporters and journalists and media? >> i think, here is one thing that happened. in january 2009 i stayed till the end. we did the handoff to president obama and at that point i didn't even have a twitter account. social media has changed a lot of things. a lot of good ways, right? anybody can now talk directly to people. but it is also, it also unmasked a lot of incivility amongst individuals. i think civility is a choice. and so when i worked for him, i always would think in my mind, would he be proud of something i'm saying right now? if the answer was no, i wouldn't say it. steve: when you go to the beginning of the bush administration a lot of people felt the election was stolen. >> absolutely. steve: that was very -- >> then the war of course. i think, there was, there was incivility but it was underneath.

5:36 am
romania, you name it, so he graduates stanford university in engineering or digital something or other. he graduates. his visa automatically expires. he has to get out of the country. we just educated the scientist. he could be the next google inventor. he gets sent away. i don't understand, that is merit-based. with kindness and pragmatic, blend of pragmatic idealism. steve: pete, one of the other part of the plan is apparently the president's plan would include you have got to learn english and you have to pass a civics exam. >> makes a lot of sense to me. i'm still trying to figure out what tempestuous means. >> i will tell you right now. if my head blows up. >> i'm fine with toughness. that is where we're at. we've done enough coddling, rule breaking, dashing across the border, daca recipients. we're staring at option of daca

[applause] >> they don't want it. >> a true tough guy has a kind side is something that comforts people. it is one hand, as the velvet glove. the other hand as -- >> comforting of people is citizens live this country came here the right way. they want to know there is rule of law.

5:38 am
they earned their way to citizenship. i am not saying they broke the law. >> let the president point out examples that show he is full-bodied president. he represents all of america. he has all of our interests in mind. he understands that america is the beacon of liberty that we have an idealistic foundation. we have soaring philosophy. brian: what about lindsey fram's plan to address the emergency at the border, five-alarm fire we're witnessing where 100,000 plus every month. that has got to be done, correct? >> correct. but even there, slowly but surely it seems to me that the vast body of the american people, including the democrats, half the country, are recognizing what we're seeing a phenomenon that is historic, emptying out of central america and virtually the entire populations are on the move. it is parallel to syria going into europe. brian: could be something done this year, i hope? >> what the president has to do
5:39 am
is recognize unprecedented extraordinary nature. we never had a situation where have this huge body of potential refugee immigrants so close and they can walk. there is not ocean in the way. >> there could be a wall in the way. the democrats would never do that. >> yet its being built. they. >> it is election year. tough win it at the ballot box. ainsley: these folks were so excited when the two of you walked in. let's get them weighing in on topics. brian: who has a question over here? that guy right there? ainsley: what is your name? where are you from? steve: what is your name? >> scott from connecticut. how many u.s. citizens have to die before congress will act on illegal immigration? >> i think that's part of the i impetus for the urgency the president shown on issue. one of the first politicians that listen the to the forgotten men and women who were affected by the policies who came here
5:40 am
legally. doesn't mean you doesn't have compassion. it means you rule of law. the rule of law is compassionate to the people that follow it and not compassionate to the people who break it. which is the whole point. [applause] ainsley: someone on this side. steve: where is moses? all right. >> immigration story we bring in moses. [laughter] >> what about jesus? >> so, one of the views i have is that congress for the last 30 years have been part of the crisis on the southern border. their lack of action. men and women on the border know what is best. i think only opinion that matters is their opinion. what would you think about an independent commission of experts, not politicians coming up with a plan impaneled by congress and white house to determine what is needed and to have the commission get a blank check. in return -- >> that makes too much sense. >> in return after the border is secure, you could start working with the daca and rest of the

you a rifle, fight in the civil war, we give you ballot, cast ballot for democrats on the lower east side. there was no process. processes evolve. there is no doubt but early american immigration policy was racialist policy. we welcomed those from northern europe. very slow to accept those from southern europe. africans were barred completely. no ellis island for latinos. like the constitution itself which was signed by all white men. except for a handful. you have to recognize who we are >> immigration reparations -- >> i'm not into reparations compassion, simple stuff. daca is example. kids here 10 years, 15 years, 20 years. you have to deal with it. ainsley: be compassionate to all the women are getting molested as they're walking to the border. or all those kids. >> i agree, ainsley.
